11.13.20 – SSN – Norwalk, Conn.-
ISC West, in collaboration with premier sponsor, the Security Industry Association (SIA), announced that ISC West 2021, which was originally slated to be held March 23-26, will now take place July 19-21 at The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
After extensive internal and external consultation and monitoring of the ongoing COVID-19 virus pandemic, ISC and SIA have made the decision to reschedule ISC West 2021 well in advance.
“As a business owner myself, I know we are all adjusting to the pandemic, and I thought it would be helpful for us all to announce the rescheduled dates as early as possible,” SIA Chairman Pierre Trapanese said in a letter to SIA members. “I hope this helps provide some better planning clarity to our membership and for the people who attend, exhibit, or otherwise participate at ISC West.”
Both ISC and SIA teams look forward to welcoming our customers back to Las Vegas for strong education, demos, product announcements, awards ceremonies, networking opportunities, special events, and more.
The 2021 event will further accelerate the convergence of security, public safety and health tech solutions, and chart the course for expanded levels of public-private sector cooperation and results.
The 2021 SIA Education@ISC West program will include an extensive schedule of physical security and converged security content, while also adding in key new topics. The curriculum will include a new track on health and safety best practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including case studies and technology solutions that address employee/customer wellness and access control, business continuity, and facilities management.”
The 2021 event model will also offer a hybrid format – with both face-to-face conference pass and virtual conference pass options available, in order to serve the wide-reaching ISC community.
SIA and ISC are confident the conference will be a safe experience. To ensure that ISC West is the safest environment for a live event, the Reed Exhibitions Health & Safety Task Force, along with the expert team at the Sands Expo venue, will be ensuring that all key health and safety protocols and systems are in place for hygiene and cleaning, air conditioning and ventilation, physical distancing, PPE, health tech and health services.
